Illegal Crossings Over Northern Border Have Surged by Over 1,000% Under Biden

While the mass migration crisis has overwhelmingly taken place at the southern border between the United States and Mexico, there is a similar record-breaking surge across the northern border between the United States and Canada as well.

As reported by the Daily Caller, data from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shows that fiscal year 2024 has currently seen 12,859 illegal aliens cross the northern border. This marks a far larger amount than the previous three fiscal years under Joe Biden. By comparison, there were just 916 northern border crossings in fiscal year 2021, followed by 2,238 in fiscal year 2022, and 10,021 in fiscal year 2023.

Thus, compared to the extremely low number in fiscal year 2021, the current totals for 2024 mark a staggering 1,303% increase from Biden’s first year.

In this report, illegal border crossings are defined as the number of encounters with illegal aliens that are reported by Border Patrol between any ports of entry. This does not include the number of illegals encountered at ports of entry who are deemed inadmissible.

When Biden first ran for president, he vowed to open the borders and support mass immigration, with the promise of free, taxpayer-funded benefits for illegals such as healthcare, education, and housing, with the eventual promise of amnesty for all illegals.

However, the number of illegals flooding into the U.S. has increased to such historically unprecedented levels that there has been a widespread backlash across the country against Biden’s open-borders agenda. Even prominent Democrats, such as New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D-N.Y.), have grown critical of Biden’s handling of the crisis, which has led to a surge in homelessness, crime, drug use, and diseases. Immigration was consistently ranked as the top issue for voters in the presidential primaries, which concluded in early June.
